Feeling the Need for Spring by FiveSparrows

I live in Northwest Iowa and this winter has been so…..long!  It came early and has seemed to stay forever!  We got snowed in at Christmas, there were a couple weeks where the kids had more snow days than actual school days , and now when I shovel my drive I have to throw the snow over my head to the piles!  The weather forecast for this weekend is, of course, more snow!  I like winter, but even for me all this white is getting to be a bit much!  So, I head down into my little basement studio and start dreaming of spring creations.  Yellow flowers, green shamrocks and red breasted robins-and  I start to feel hopeful again.  After all, winter can't last forever-even in Northwest Iowa!

Bud vase with copper wire and glass beads by LittleSomethingAdded

Do you have a special little someone who likes to bring in a single little flower from the garden and there's no place to put it to display it? Then I have a solution for you!

This cute little bud vase is made from a repurposed clear glass bottle. The neck of the bottle has been wrapped in copper wire wire and then little spirals hang down with various warm tone colors glass beads at the end.

The bottle is 4" tall and the mouth of the bottle is 1/2" wide. Just the perfect size for a single flower.

As a "Get Well Soon" alternative
